Blog Spotlight: Dynamics AX 2012 Upgrade frustrations of Alex
I thought I would close out Monday, with a nice spotlight on a great new blogger. His name is Alex, and he is blogging about his adventures, with upgrading an instance of Dynamics AX 2009, to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.
A direct link to his blog can be found here.: Alex on DAX
What caught my eye, and the blog entry in which I make mention of, above, is this one.: AoD: Dynamics AX 2012 Upgrade frustrations
What great about the posting, is its open approach of going through this process. The upgrade process, for sure has changed, and a lot of great stuff. There is also a lot of new things, and that means new headaches, specifically that Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 is still considered in beta.
It's to be expected that you run into issues, with such a task, that has a lot of i's to dot, and t's to cross. I would expect, in the current release, to still have issues with the upgrading process, however the Beta team, and connect from Microsoft, are great resources. I would suggest Alex, if you are apart of the TAP program, or Beta program, that you use Connect, and see if there is already someone, who just might have ran into this already.
If not, I'm sure Microsoft would love to have the details of what your hitting, how to re-create it, so that it can be worked through and fixed. That's actually the best advice I can give anyone, who is needing feedback and help through processes, before AX 2012 releases to the public, in Sept.
I would like to thank Alex for taking the time, and sharing with the rest of us, and suggest he continue his writing efforts, and that you take the time to book mark his blog.
That's all for now, but this week, a new dive into Dynamics AX 2012, architect / technical style, as well as partner highlights, and more. Of course, this all leads up to the week of Sunburns & Sandals!
